EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- Experienced and amateur singers came together tonight at Trinity Lutheran Church for a rehearsal of CVASing – short, for chippewa valley area singers involved in neighborhood giving.

This is the 11th year for CVASing. The group uses its main concerts as a benefit for feed my people food bank. A dozen songs are lined up for this year's performances... And water is the theme of the show.

"We encourage and welcome anyone that likes to sing or may have sung in high school but hasn't sung for a while, this is a great choir to jump in on,” conductor Gary Rambo said to WEAU 13 News on Sunday. “They can blend in with some very good sight readers and good leaders along with those that are a little more cautious and a little less secure on their parts."

Rambo said close to 80 people signed up for this first rehearsal. The CVASing benefit concerts are scheduled for Sunday, March 3rd at 2 and 7 p.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church in Eau Claire.
